Jon has been everywhere as a volunteer. Including many trail building events on Mount Sutro, a mechanic at bike build events, and recently at the SFUR booth at Ales to Trails at China Camp. Jon recently moved to Pacifica but still finds time to assist SFUR. That kind of dedication earns a gold star. In his downtime Jon races cyclocross.

August 2010 – Jason Biteng

Jason started his SFUR career by showing up for a monthly group ride. Jason currently works at UCSF so it was not a hard step to take to volunteer on the Mount Sutro trails, where he is now a regular. Jason has continued to bring support to Bike Builds, and other SFUR events.  Jason’s other form of transportation is a motorcycle.

October 2010- Christy McCain

VOM Christy raking Christy is another versatile superstar of the SFUR Volunteer Pool. She made her mark on the scene by representing at the big April Bike Build, then followed that up with a strong effort at National Trail Day in June on Mount Sutro. However, Christy’s most defining moment was three magical days she volunteered with us at YMCA Youth Mountain Bike Camp this summer. What makes this even more special is Christy lives in Oakland. Cheers!
